La Grande triade by René Guénon

By René Guénon

Beaucoup comprendront sans doute, par le seul titre de cette étude, qu'elle se rapporte surtout au symbolisme de l. a. culture extrême-orientale, vehicle on sait assez généralement le rôle que joue dans celle-ci le ternaire formé par les termes Ciel, Terre, Homme (Tien-ti-jen) ; c'est ce ternaire que l'on s'est habitué à désigner plus particulièrement par le nom de Triade, même si l'on n'en comprend pas toujours exactement le sens et l. a. portée, que nous nous attacherons précisément à expliquer ici, en signalant d'ailleurs aussi les correspondances qui se trouvent à cet égard dans d'autres formes traditionnelles [...].

Human beings feel the boundary that circumscribes everything for them, for themselves, the first act; they must believe it, as certainly as they know everything else. Consequently we are here not yet transcendent, but rather in the I and for the I. In order to conceive itself the I must represent to itself another like itself, anatomize, as it were.

This would be Fichte’s [notion of] intellect. The absolute I is this determined matter before the original act occurs in it, before reflection is applied to it/ Thus we have observed the most natural path in our deduction of philosophy – The need for a philosophy in consciousness – apparent progress from limited to unlimited – reflection upon that – apparent progress from unlimited to limited – results of this reflection – results of the feeling of this reflection – reflection upon these results according to those results – Discovered connection, or philosophy.
